I’m one of those audience that stay SIT and read all the movie end credits so since Michael Mann’s THIEF,I was younger and in full VHS era, his noble and “FROM other times” name credited often as Visual Consultant hit my interest, so in the years I understand who Gusmano is and finally I understand why I truly LOVE a certain kind of cinema . So if matter of LOVE I hope to meet him one day for shake hands and have a great day.
AMC’S THE TERROR Is one of most awaited show of 2018,produced by SCOTT FREE(RIDLEY SCOTT) And David W.Zucker and adapted from Dan Simmons novel is based on 1848 circa true Events [The real ships HMS TERROR AND HMS EREBUS were discovered just 4 years ago THE GUARDIAN],so watching this outstanding terrific crafted series is like read a history horror book and everything deliver a great sense of dread,mixing gruesome deaths with a sort of nautical lucid nightmare.This story is seasoned with top notch acting [Remarkable parts by JARED HARRIS,CIARIN HINDS AND TOBIA MENZIES] ,Production design [outstanding job by Jonathan McKinstry] and a stunning use of music. About that last clue there are a couple of finds that are milestones of the music and really help to deliver the fear and despair of those bunch of people trapped in that sort of frozen hell.

2017 has Bring one of best movie never seen since years , I need movie like this , peace and enjoyment for my eyes and yes ,speaking about futuristic AI subjects, I’m one of those people that did not like BLADE RUNNER 2049; this one GHOST IN THE SHELL from Rupert Sanders is far better in my view, has the same charm of Alex Garland ‘s EX Machina and contains unforgettable moments (like the jellyfish scene ) but the experience is boosted starting from a linear well written story(forgivable in some little parts) and crafted with a outstanding crew continuing with casting choices, I LOVE Scarlett globally talking as I loved the choices of Juliette Bionche,Takeshi Kitano and the short uncredited cameo of Michael Wincott ;so let’s quote again the special EFX from Weta and others(don’t t forget Art Dept,Make up,Practical and CGI) , the Academy Award Jan Roelfs at Production Design , outstanding Jess Hall BSC Cinematography dealing with Alexa 65 and “Super Panavision 70” 65mm 5-perf film , the bloody Soundtrack by Lorne Balfe in association with Clint Mansell and last but not the least of Course Rupert Sanders Direction(And yes I hate Snow White and the Huntsman) so If you HAVE NOT GIVE YOUR CONSENT at Theaters please take your copy of BLU RAY everywhere and Enjoy the outstanding Experience of GHOST IN THE SHELL.
